I know it was a splash of humor. I was just saying some don't know about it and it does help. I really was just trying to help; humor-be-damned.
Gotcha. You're right. I would actually consider the sheeting rinse a separate entity than the standard rinse I was referring to. Definitely an oversight on my part


Good catch, I appreciate it. I'm adding it now. I owe you a beer

Do you think applying wet diamond sealant while its humid would be bad in any way ? Weather has been crap lately

I just put some on my black car this Sunday and it was fairly humid out. As long as the car is dry and cool you shouldn't have any issues.

I swear by blackfire wet diamond now, the shine is so

Yeah I don't need to worry about the surface being hot.
Just wanted to make sure humidity doesn't play a role in the hazing and curing time.

Can't wait to use it, that's IF I can. This rain is getting a little annoying

Listen to this OP, he knows what he is talking about!!

Thanks,

Griots garage is better entry level but PC can work certainly

It tends to sweat in humid conditions

Nice job! For Claying, you say to not bother drying the car after the washing. Are you saying to use water as the lubricant for the clay instead of the detail?

With claying, you're going to be going over the entire car with detail spray and wiping off each panel after you're done. It's a waste of time and energy to dry the car off only to rewet it again with DS. The water left on the car will have little affect on your DS.

I know exactly what you mean, every time I wash my "black" car lol it rains within 24 hours or so. I don't even have a garage anymore, just covered parking..

Perfectly fine to use in high humidity. Ive never had a problem. Give it thirty minutes to haze and try to buff off. If its not coming off easily or looks oily, give it a little more time.

No. You'll still use your clay lube. Just drying the car is a waste of time.

No problem! I'm just glad I didn't offend you. A lot of context can get lost in a post and I seem to be misunderstood a bit lately. Good job on the thread, again.
